OPPORTUNITY QUILT / SILENT AUCTION
UTQG was gifted a beautiful handmade quilt which appears to be some years old. The quilt is in good condition and will be made available to one lucky guild member.
According to Nancy McDonough: The quilt is scrappy with fabrics dating from the 30's to the 70's. The workmanship is excellent. Hand quilted with very even 10spi. An estimated insurance value of $300 is reasonable.
If you would like a chance to win this precious gift, please submit a bid in writing to Margaret S or Stacye R. Bids will be taken through the October meeting. The quilt will continue to be on display during the October and November meetings and will be awarded to the lucky recipient at the December meeting.
